Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Peter Adler of The Cult of Hockey at the Edmonton Journal,
... speaking of the Oilers: in the ideal world they would discipline Yakupov to the full extent of the league’s bylaws for insubordination. They would also let him know in no uncertain words that he would have to stay in Sarnia until his contract there expires.
Except: this is not an ideal world. Fearing Yakupov might feel he had been mistreated, and that he might bolt for Mother Russia again, doing another Radulov, so to speak, they would give him red-carpet treatment upon his return.
Well, here’s a word of advice, as if the Oilers wanted it: if you ignore Yakupov’s shenanigans now, the day will come (and sooner than you expect) when you’ll regret even thinking about drafting they guy, never mind doing so, and then signing him to an NHL contract.
Nail Yakupov is a bad apple just waiting to grow on you.
